Interlac

The more or less only (and even then just barely) useful thing I ever created was some (Windows) TrueType fonts, done a very long time ago (circa 1993/1994, in my active days in APA-247 and the CompuServe Comics and Animation forum).

The font is for the language INTERLAC, as seen in DC-Comics in the pages of Superman, Superboy, Legion of Super-Heroes, Legionnaires, L.E.G.I.O.N. etc. It even includes more than a dozen Legionaire symbols.

For more information about Interlac please look up the Wikipedia article


The font is available in two versions, hollow and solid (well, just try it out, the files are less than 50kb anyway).

Installing the font is quite easy:

For MS Windows

(tested with 3.1 to Windows XP)

  • Download one or both TrueType fonts (are in zip format)
  • Extract ZIP file - the .TTF files are the ones you need, the other files are just a readme
  • From Start Menu, go to "Control Panel" and select "Fonts"
  •  In "Fonts" window, select "File" menu item and select "Install Fonts"
  • Browse to location of extracted TTF files and select font from "List of fonts", press OK after that. That's it
  • Font should be visible in font list (font Window) or in any Windows application

For Mac OS X

(tested with 10.4 - I never had a Mac earlier, so I can not say anything about the previous flavors - in 1992 a comic forum member converted the TrueTypes to Adobe postscript font)

  • Download one or both TrueType fonts (are in zip format)
  • Extract ZIP file - the files with the .TTF extension are the ones you need, the other files are just a readme
  • Go to your Applications folder, start "Font Book"
  • Use "File" -> "Add Font" and browse to the location with the extracted fontfiles
  • You may get a warning when installing the Interlac solid font - OSX does not seem tro recognize the font table name correctly, in this case, check the "Check All" button and then "Install Checked". It should work even with the warning, I did not see any problems till now

By the way, that's how the fonts look like...(click on image for larger resolution):
